This piece is part of my 7 day sketchbook challenge--learn more about it in this post!
Round Trip by Ann Jonas is a book I discovered around the time I was in second grade. I have a vague memory that I learned of it through Reading Rainbow, but I don't know how accurate that is...I watched a ton of Reading Rainbow during that time in my life lol.
As an adult, I love this book as much as I did back when I was a kid! What's so magical about it? Well you read the book as you normally would but when you get to the last page, it tells you to turn it upside down and there's another story to read as you flip back through the pages! I love how creative and clever it is! I also really like the visuals and the black and white modern minimalistic illustrations.
Today's page was inspired by this book and I realized exactly how hard it is to make an image work both ways! 😅 My attempt includes line drawing of leaves--when you turn it upside down, it's a dress 🍂👗
I made a short video of this page along with a flip through of the book! Click here to watch
